Seeking Refuge: Birds and Landscapes of the Pacific Flyway

Descriere: Seeking Refuge examines the development and management of refuges in the wintering range of migratory birds along the Pacific Flyway from Mexico to Alaska, the westernmost of four major migration routes in North America. Many of the key places migratory birds use are sites of recent contentious debates over water usage. In a time when global warming promises to compound the stress on water and migratory species, this book demonstrates the need to foster landscapes where both wildlife and people can thrive.–Robert Wilson is assistant professor of geography at Syracuse University.
